We had lunch here while shopping for the day. The salsa was a little bit to hot for my taste and the chips were just ok. I had a beef enchilada with beans and rice. Not bad, but nothing special. My daughter got the taco...More

Nothing fancy, but good for a casual bite. Friendly staff with good service. Cute building, too. A nice end to a day in Manitou.

Stopped in after a morning hike locally. The food was definitely good. Free chips and salsa while you wait, which is a nice touch. Restaurant is a bit run down, but the food made up for it! Would definitely recommend.

We really enjoyed eating here. They had so many interesting specials. We love Mexican food and have never seen such a variety of dishes. Very delicious and our son could order a hamburger so we were all happy!

We tried this place on a Friday evening. Our first warning should have been there was not wait time. However we were excited to eat, so happily took the table. The overall look of the restaurant was ok, but the more I think about it,...More
